“Vines provides artistic avenues of sharing what is valuable in the world which is not material things.”
FREE ONLINE PERFORMING ARTS SUMMER PROGRAM FOR EMERGING CREATIVES
Return to Power. Connect Digital to the Natural. Reimagine our new “Normal”
A call to emerging creatives who are passionate about relational justice, decolonization and land-based art making. A call to those searching for a way to create in unprecedented circumstances and interested in cultivating an active community beyond what we’ve known before. We are at a pivotal moment in the world where our basic social structures have been shaken and broken open. It is our time to try and shape what comes after together. The Vines Emerging Creatives Program is here to focus your energy, efforts and frustrations. This free multi-week online summer program will work to find the balance between staying in and connecting to the land. This includes a variety of art practice workshops, a dedicated team of mentors from the festival and payment for your finish project which will be presented at the festival.
Participants will take part in 9 virtual gatherings. 2 art skill workshops to introduce and dive into creating new work, followed by 3 mentorship sessions in which participants will break into focus groups and be paired with a mentor. Mentors are dedicated specifically to develop your final project which will be presented virtually at the Vines Art Festival in August. With guidance from our mentors, you will be given the opportunity to explore deeply our relationships with land and virtual reality as you shape a project that brings these two worlds together. Lets reimagine our new ‘normal.’
This is a FREE program and includes payment for your project in the festival.
